the changes. as what we can do with it, it is great. is seeing how technological companies and the nsa are doing their own thing outside of what our privacy rights are, he gets really scary when those drones are going to be equipped with cameras and the nsa can tap into those cameras. i would be my concern. it is purely on the privacy front you have concerns about this? caller: not exactly. looking at this logistically, a livery by drones is not much better than leaving a package on the doorstep, which is not there he secure. -- not veryatch secure. i can just watch for the drones are going. who controls the airspace over my house? maybe i don't want a drone flying over my house. the technology is awesome, i think it's great. my one concern is what is the nsa getting into with these companies? are we on the road to fascism? somebody pointed out on twitter -- what do i do with the yellow container? logistically, there are a lot of kinks to work out. i see it is a very steep road. it as a very steep road. it is the undetectable firearms act -- here is dan from wilbert in oklahoma on the

about. the nsa disclosures were a big distraction. and whether or not there would be an intervention in syria to consider. any negotiations with iran taking place. he had a lot going on. presidents do and that is not necessarily an excuse but it is a matter of priority and message the president sends inside his administration, how much he wants to know about a certain issue. hes one, it does not seem wanted to know as much as he now would have liked to have known. >> in the last minute here, i want to ask you about recent reports the president is considering sticking around washington dc after the end of his term. what do you think that will do to his legacy? interesting ifbe they decide to do that. he suggested this last week they would stay to allow sasha to finish high school here, about 2.5 years after he leaves the white house area -- house. it is something many working parents think about, what is best for their kids. it is difficult for presidents to stick around washington. only one has done it, and that was woodrow wilson. he did it because he was suffering the consequences
